Simple, cheap, and does the job

Just the primary instruments plus the tach. Van extremely useful tool for initial ifr practice and the instrument portion of ppl training. It even has inop instrument challenges where the attitude indicator will slowly fail. Probably has other failing instruments I have not seen yet. Only reason not 5 stars is because I think it's missing a realistic lagging effect where the roll of the plane lags behind the control input. Otherwise it's great.

Power + Attitude = Performance

This is a great training tool for IFR students and rusty pilots. It helps develop and practice a good scan, and it teaches the most fundamental principle of Instrument flying: Attitude + Power = Performance

Level flight: half bar up + 2200 rpm
Ascent at 500fpm: 5 degrees up + 2400rpm
Descent at 500fpm: 5 degrees down + 1800 rpm
Level turn: half bar up + 2300rpm

Besides that, the game/challenge format of this app is brilliant, as it motivates IFR students to try harder.

Before you start your IFR training you have to know :

A) how to scan
B) performance settings

Make your life easier, master this first then go and shoot approaches
